"If we die for them, Harry, I'm gonna kill you!" - Ron Weasley, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 Hey there y'all. OK, that was nothing like me. I never talk like that. Let's see... A bit of background info ('cause obviously, you're all so interested :P) My full name is Emily Autumn Mariah McGlashan. My Protag name is AutumnMay, based on what my mum was going to call me (Autumn Maple, after a perfume she liked). You may call me Emily ('cause that's my name), Autumn (half of my Protag name), Em (as I'm called my relatives and people who only like to say one syllable)... and any other thing you may wish to call me. As long as it's not offensive (: That picture up and to the left is of me, taken during a time in which I was incredibly bored, and therefore took a stream of rather strange face-pulling photos. This was one of the more "normal" ones. I am five foot two and a half (I'm very proud of the half. It's how much I've grown in the past year. Half an inch. Yes, I'm short). I have fast metabolism. Considering the amount of crap I eat, I should be vastly overweight by now. I have two sisters. Jeana, who's eight years younger than me, and Rachel, who's eighteen months younger than me. They're both very annoying. Jeana more than Rachel. I'm fifteen years old. Things I love (Favourites) The song I See the Light from Tangled. My guitar, Diana. Sara Bareilles and Kelly Clarkson. Music. Singing. I sing everywhere and all the time. People say I'm good at it. I'd sing even if I wasn't. Food. Yep, food. Harry Potter. The film The Perks of Being a Wallflower. Especially the character Patrick. Why I Write. So you may have guessed, I love to write. Like, all the time. Although I don't tend to finish my stories, and I have a load of characters who don't have stories. A habit I have with my characters is that if I write a female character, she will have a brother or male best friend who is gay. And if I write as a guy, he's rarely straight. I don't even know why. I don't think I've done it on Protag as of yet, but I probably will at some point. Writing is fun, and expands imaginations. And gives me something to do in my free time, of which I seem to have more than everyone else. My Rules of Writinghood I enthusiastically encourage correction of my spelling punctuation, and grammar. So if you ever see some bad SPG in my writing, you can be all like "How dare you?" 'Cause seriously, how dare I? I write every day. Anything. I have like twenty different stories on my laptop, and I write in at least one of them a day. I'm open minded. So I don't just stick to female characters, first person, personal experience and romance (even though that is my favourite way to write). And I at least consider an idea when someone suggests it to me. I read other people's writing. This is a very good practice. It gives me new ideas, ways of writing, and inspiration. So really it kind of links in with the open minded point. I edit my work. Sometimes. Probably not as often as I should, but I still do. This also involves going back to stuff I wrote yonks (yonks: an long time. May vary depending on your opinion of what a long time is) ago and making it better with my new and improved writing abilities. And finally, I know that there is always room for improvement. Different people write in different ways, so there are so many branches of the writing tree there to grasp, there is always going to be something I can be better at. Active Collabs The Zombie Chronicles Started by Alley. In a fictional American town, a zombie apocalypse descends. End of the Old WaysStarted by CrystalRose. A look a a type of angel which isn't angelic, our characters try to break free from the ways that angels have settled into. Active Solos The Lyric ArchiveSongs which I wrote. Most of them are love songs, but d'you know how hard it is not to accidentally turn something into a love song? The GazeboLola Tarapachii is fifteen and already has the responsibility of an average parent. With a brother who won't eat, an alcoholic mother and a best friend who won't stick to one personality, her life seems to be falling apart bit by bit. Not to mention Trish and her group of boys. The Dreaming TrilogyFour teenagers find themselves the last people on earth. This is a story about what they do. The third story is currently on hold while I rewrite the first two, but still feel free to read. A Short and Tragic StoryKatie and Luke have always been best friends. But now Katie is moving away, so they take Katie's brother Michael and Luke's sister Honey on a goodbye trip to London. However, this trip is cut short with an unhappy ending. There ya go!
